Electric And gas trimmers. Goodbye, Burdock And Nettle.
In this article we will talk about trimmers. Choosing a trimmer for gardening. Which trimmer to choose is the main question facing the future owner.
LAWN MOWER needs room. Imagine the picture: a large MOWER LAWNER is trying to cower and climb into
a gap between the fence and shrubs or go through the undergrowth under fruit trees. Most likely it will be problematic. An ELECTRIC or PETROL TRIMMER is best suited for these purposes.
TRIMMER is relatively young, he is about thirty years old. It is designed specifically for hard-to-reach spots, but it can also be used for lawn processing. This garden tool is relatively safe, easy to use and can successfully replace the sickle and scythe. And, most importantly. TRIMMER are not afraid of surface irregularities. tubercles and pits.
The main question when choosing a TRIMMER is: “WHICH TOOL IS BETTER. PETROL OR ELECTRICAL”. The pros and cons of these varieties of TRIMMERS are the same as that of CHAIN SAWS. GASOLINE SPRAYS are rather light, multifunctional and more powerful than ELECTRIC TRIMMERS. They can cultivate areas with dense thickets, coarse stems of plants and small shrubs. the power reaches 1.5 kW. over, in GASOLINE TRIMMERS. basically like in the whole GAS TOOLS. the OUTPUT POWER is indicated, while in ELECTRIC TRIMMERS. the CONSUMPTION. (CONSUMPED minus 30% = OUTPUT).
GASOLINE Scythes are divided into two types. by power and engine type. TWO-STROKE and FOUR-STROKE. The models of BENZOTRIMERS with TWO-STROKE engines prevail for which the BENZINE ADDITIVE mixture is used as fuel (ratio 25: 1, 40: 1, 50: 1). Better suited unleaded AI-92 gasoline.
FOZEN-FOLLOWERS with a FOUR-STROKE engine are refueled with gasoline and oil (for FOUR-STROKE engines) separately.
The capacity of the fuel tank is from 0.5 to 1.5 liters.
The device of the engine of the GASOLINE TRIMMER is similar to the engine of the CHAINSAW.
The main advantage of BENZOKOSA is its mobility and "independence". It is not “tied” to the place of work, as an ELECTRIC TRIMMER extension cord, respectively, can be used wherever you want. However, GASOLINE BRAIDS are very noisy and emit exhaust gases. the environmental situation in the area in this case will suffer slightly (albeit slightly). ECHO (GT-22GES, SRM-22GES, SRM-2305SI) can help with this situation. At the moment, the engines of this Japanese company have the lowest rates of exhaust gases, as they were originally developed for American users, "famous" for their "Greenpeace" inclinations.

ELECTRIC TRIMMERS are available in two types. with the LOWER and UPPER engine layout.
The first ones are lighter, but they have a small power (200. 400 W.) and are suitable for
mainly for mowing soft young lawn grass.
A TRIMMER with a LOWER motor location can only mow dry grass, as there is a risk of moisture getting through the ventilation openings into the engine, which can lead, at best, to failure of the tool, and, even worse, to electric shock.
You should also monitor the cleanliness of the ventilation openings so that the motor constantly has proper cooling, otherwise it may overheat and the TRIMMER will have to be taken to a service center for “treatment”.
The recommended area for processing with an ELECTRIC TRIMMER with a LOWER motor location is small. 0.5-2 hundred parts.
ELECTRIC SKINS with the UPPER arrangement of the electric motor are more powerful than their "LOWER" counterparts. 400-600 watts. (VIKING TE600, STIHL FSE61), but recently more and more models with power up to 1000 watts appear. (HAMMER ETR900A, VIKING TE1000, STIHL FSE81, MTD RCTB1000), which makes it possible to mow not only young grass. Since the electric motor for this type of ELECTRIC TRIMMERS is on top, it doesn’t matter in principle whether it will mow grass, wet or dry.
An important detail is the presence of the ELECTRIC TRIMMER PROTECTION AGAINST OVERHEAT (TERMORELE) (VIKING TE700, TE1000; STIHL FSE81). This option will not allow the electric motor to burn out and will turn off the tool during critical loads. The thing is very important, given that, unlike the GASOLINE TRIMMER, the ELECTRIC Scythe must be carefully monitored and after every 15-20 minutes of work give it a rest of about 15 minutes.
ELECTRIC TRIMMERS are generally not equipped with a long electric cable. The way out of this situation is a simple extension cord, the length of which directly depends on the size of the site. Extreme care should be taken in the work, as there is a risk of tangling in the long “tail” or damage to the electrical wire.
It is believed that a TRIMMER with a LOWER motor arrangement is easier to work with than a TOP, because its weight is less. This statement is erroneous: when working the first version of the TRIMMER, you have to constantly hold the tool (and its entire weight) either in bent hands or leaning forward (depending on the user’s height), therefore, certain areas of the body are under tension for a long time, especially if this type of ELECTRIC TRIMMER does not have length adjustment.
When using the ELECTRIC TRIMMER with the TOP position of the electric motor, the user holds the main mass of the tool (the engine itself) in one lowered hand near the thigh, and with the other hand, holding the ADDITIONAL HANDLE (adjustable along the length of the bar), performs pendulum movements from right to left. Thus, only one hand “works”, the second is lowered along the body, holds the bulk of the instrument, and the back does not experience additional loads. Accordingly, the user’s fatigue is reduced significantly.
